Paul Kelly
Paul Kelly From very early on in his career, Paul Kelly has been recognized as one of the most significant singer/songwriters in the country. Inspired initially by the likes of Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Lou Reed and Ray Davies, Kelly's narrative song writing is infused with wry observations, bittersweet emotions and enormous appeal.

As well as issuing an enduring body of work with his own bands, Kelly has written film scores (Lantana and the Cannes 2006 highlight, Jindabyne), and produced albums for and written songs with some of Australia and New Zealand's finest artists.

His most recent albums have included the Bluegrass inspired Foggy Highway, the extraordinary Tchad Blake produced Ways and Means, and his latest album Stolen Apples, released in Australia in July 2007.
